Hopefully some parts of SW WA will get sufficient rain within the next week or two smile for farming needs/planning.

Ok, so falls to 50-150 mm in the SW WA region to 9 am, 24th-26th smile , thus far! A secondary Deep-SW upper-trough rossby-wave approaching next 12-24 hours.

I'd be excited - if I was farming over there!

Parts of the SW WA corner region received in the vicinity of 100-150 mm in the week to yesterday [Bureau]. Great falls smile ! ... Another modest-to-reasonable system looks like it's going through at present...and yet more seems likely by the 5th smile . Then just have to wait for the upper-trough rossby-wave pattern to propagate further east for the rest of the country.

Hi All, Forecasts are one thing, reality is often different. Yes we have had 2 strong fronts come through - wind over 90Kms per hr in both events, which both blew top soil all over the place. 4mm out of the first with over 3o bushfires lit with the first, and 20mm out of the second. Our average to June should be 403mm we have recorded 152mm for the year - just over 1/3. Our rain for June should be 130mm we have had 26mm so far, for which I am grateful. But WA is a big State - some of the northern, eastern and central wheatbelt have had good rains out of both those events - other areas have missed out - many acres planted dry in the hope of rain.

As with other drier years, down here on the south coast, we can look down further south to the southern ocean and see huge storm cloud bands, week after week - but these are all many kilometers south of where they would normally be at this time of the year, hence the low rainfall. Hay is now at a real premium with June and July being the coldest months.

Certainly going to be a very critical time for cropping over the next month in many southern and eastern parts of the State, yet even in some dry areas I hear of storms bringing just enough rain to get a germination - Cheers FE

Yes, I agree it can be at times.

Well...after a series of consecutive frontal and upper-trough systems to reach SW WA coasts, let's hope the lull in [significant-rainfall] proceedings is just that smile .

Hope all goes well as this season progresses for you FE, and to all other growers across Aus.
